    Thank you all for the complements! I am just working trying to beat a deadline now. The freak out is less than a month away! This last week I stripped the body down for paint. Removed the windshield and found a surprise! had to fix that. Then I decided to finish the por15 in the rear seat area.

    1 supply, 1 return, 1 vapor, that is the green/ clear one.

    I really need to finish this, my scorpion awaits!

    My goal is to have the spider finished by the freak out

    Your thread on Mira is epic, the pics of the new paint look excellent.

    Looks like getting to FFO will be no problem at this rate.

    Big thumbs up!

    Thanks Karl, I didnt figure this was the place for all of that, wrong engine location...lol Once i find an x i will do the same to it. Still a long way to go. It seems everything i touch needs to be a little better. My original goal for this car has changed.. The paint is not near perfect I had to rush it to try and make the completion time. This will just be a preservation paint job. In a year or so I will paint it again in a booth and fix the things i left not perfect. It was only about 300.00 for the paint and reducer and hardener in a 2k urethane.

    It is a good thing that everything you touch Is made a little (lot) better :)

    I think you are welcome to post whatever you wish related to the 124 in this part of the forum, its a matter of the amount of effort needed to keep two forums worth of posts going. It’s a lot of work.

    In any case, always good to see what you are doing, its been impressive so far.

    Have a great time at FFO.
